Watch Scott Adkins Kick Some Ass In NINJA: SHADOW OF A TEAR Trailer
There is no question about it: Scott Adkins is one incredibly talented martial artist. Just last month, ScreenAnarchy broke news that Adkins will be starring in Wu Jing's solo directing debut, Wolf, and it had many fans excited. And now the trailer for another one of Adkins' projects, Ninja: Shadow Of A Tear, has been released. Action fans are advised to check it out - it is packed full of non-stop hard-hitting, ass-kicking action. 

Casey Bowman has finally settled down. He's happily married to Namiko (who is pregnant with their first child), living in Japan and teaching at the Koga dojo. While buying her a present, Casey is attacked by two punks. He shrugs it off, assuming it to be a simple mugging. But when Namiko is brutally murdered later that same night, Casey's world falls apart. Stricken with grief and thirsty for revenge, Casey tracks down the two thugs who tried to rob him, but they can't provide him with any clues to his wife's murder. So Casey travels to Thailand, to the dojo of a close friend. His grief and anger are taking control of him and he lashes out while sparring with other students. When one of the students is killed in the same way as Namiko, Casey finally gets the clues he needs to track down his wife's killer and unravel a mystery of grudges deep in the Burmese jungle.

Holy Shit, Ben Affleck is already going to work? When the fuck did he do a Ninja movie? Oh wait, that's Scott Adkins, lol.

I was just thinking to myself...why has there been no news on the Ninja sequel in forever then bam here is a trailer. Looks fucking great!

Michael KingscottSeptember 10, 2013 3:14 AM

Bang on, trailer looks very good, can't wait for the film - some very nice techniques / takedowns show that I've not seen before :-)

Awesome trailer. Can't wait for this one.

Quaint how Twitch has followers from both ends of the cinema spectrum. Super artsy people and B-movie loving dudes.

But yeah this looks appropriately cheesy for a DTV flick.

QinlongSeptember 10, 2013 7:41 AM

Contrary to what a lot people seem to think, it's quite possible (and even rewarding) to be a fan of both ends of that spectrum. No need to choose one or the other.

Todd BrownSeptember 10, 2013 7:43 AM

And that exact principal is one of the founding notions of the site.

Aleks AchternaamSeptember 10, 2013 10:24 AM

Hey amen, I wasn't knocking it, just pointing it out.

Nooo not Namiko ;_;

Hiroaki JohnsonSeptember 10, 2013 11:24 AM

Looks fun, and Florentine does good action... But... I guess I was hoping for a little more ninja and a bit less straight up brawling.

Steve AustinSeptember 10, 2013 11:53 AM

People owe a huge debt to Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung films of days gone by.

QinlongSeptember 10, 2013 1:26 PM

I think ninjas are a lot less cinegenic than people seem to think... A ninja is supposed to be unseen, and a ninja in plain sight always seems kind of awkward. That equation makes it difficult to have a really visually compelling film all about them. The concept is better suited for a Splinter Cell-ish video game.

Hiroaki JohnsonSeptember 10, 2013 1:43 PM

Might just have to agree to disagree. Sleight of hand, acrobatics, sneaking, and gadgets are pretty classic cinematic elements in my mind. It's really not far off from spy genre conventions. There's a spectrum obviously, I just was hoping they'd have branched out from their formula more.

DragonrageSeptember 10, 2013 3:29 PM

This years The Raid! I just hope it will get enough appreciation...

((YAWN)) Same old same old (storyline, action and unbelievable "Last Samurai" bullsh*t) GTFOH - Str8 to DVD or free TV will be the result. //////////
On a more positive note, Scott would make an excellent STUNTMAN for Ryan Reynolds DEADPOOL. :)
